    Default The Blues Bison

    Introducing The Blue Bison, so named because it is big & my son donated a stuffed bison to ride in it.
    I think it will finally be roaming the plains this summer.
    Over the past few weeks we have cleaned up almost a decade

ID:	52243of stuff that got "stored" in, around and under it. Reinstalled the trans and exhaust, ordered rear wheels, reinstalled the TFI amongst other things. Right now fighting to get it started. The TFI was "borrowed" under hurried circumstances. I neglected to mark the dist. To make things more interesting I was just informed the "fresh" gas I just poured in is from last year's lawnmowing season. Got fuel pressure but it will not burp fart or make any kind of starting noises. Can't reach in to plug cyl #1 w/my finger, may try cyl #5... I believe the TFI I put in is good it was the spare from dragstrip box.

    Hope the rebirth goes well. It always sounded like a fun car. Nice to get it back in action.

    That sucks. I have a really nice sycamore tree in my yard that's as old as the house and would hate to lose it. It's healthy as an ox but the wind lately has been insane..

    Finally got the tank out.
    I recall the adventures of reinstalling Donald 's tank @ Scottfest. It took a crew of experienced mechanics to get it back in. Here it's just lil ole me. LOL

    Met with 2 tree companies today, one ran away screaming, the other gave us a firm number & will return tomorrow to giter done. The boys & I have to help haul wood for that price though....

    mostly the misery part is the short studs. If you can get them to back out some it helps, or just sub them for threaded rod will make your life easier. Apparently the stock fasteners were a snap-off design, which is why they're just barely long enough to hold it when tight and an absolute bear to get back together.

    Gotcha. 1 came out as a bolt. The other is still Studley like.
    Did not touch it today, worked on getting the tree out. I will need a new fuel float assy. Any idea where to get one? Green doesn't have it...
    Did not get the pump out yet, I am expecting another rusted out horror show.

    Float or fuel level sensor unit?

    Floats are easy, shared among lots of Ford stuff from 60’s-80’s: https://www.amazon.com/Brass-Ford-Fu.../dp/B01GFDB428

    The fuel level sensor is unabtanium. But you can probably fix yours. Or at least use sedan parts to fix yours. Here’s a write up I did: http://www.grandmarq.net/vb/showthre...ght=Resistance

    The new tank arrived. The seam on one side and all corners were bent.
    They are shipping a new one.
    No replacement level senders available anywhere.
    Sent it out to be refurbed.

    Pondering weather to paint the new gas tank or not. It is coated with invisible sticky stuff that would need to be removed first.
    Was thinking self etch primer & Rusteoleum, or maybe bed liner?

    The sticky stuff seems to be good at keeping moisture out. My new tank has been on for several years and looks like new. No salt exposure though.
